Red Wing 8043 Merchant Oxford Shoe (Olive Mohave)
The Merchant shoe from Red Wing is inspired by American workman’s boots of the early 1920’s. The come from a time when steel toe boxes were being removed from the design in order to create a more comfortable fit for the wearer. This Merchant model is crafted using Olive Mohave leather, which is known for its rough outer, its supple nature, and its ability to develop a unique patina over time. A Chemi Gum Cork outer sole has been featured on this shoe for maximum comfort and grip. Brown waxed flat laces have also been included on this 8043 model, which blend perfectly with the leather’s natural colour.
All in all this is a very versatile offering from the iconic American brand. It can be easily worn casually with a pair of indigo or battered jeans, or matched with a pair of crisp chinos and a white shirt for more formal occasions.
